ESMRMB Educational Activities: 2019 Preview

The ESMRMB continues to offer courses in three outstanding educational programmes in 2019

  • School of MRI programme: for physicians & radiographers
  • Lectures on MR programme: for MR physicists & other basic or clinical scientists
  • Hands-on MRI programme: hands-on training for MRI radiographers & interested physicians


ESMRMB Congress 2019 – Rotterdam/NL

We look forward to welcoming you to the vibrant port city of Rotterdam/NL next year!

Immerse yourself in a new congress experience, which now combines the advantages of a focused workshop with the broad scope of an annual meeting! ESMRMB 2019 will be organised around three major themes:

  •     Machine Learning in MRI – Acquire Reconstruct, and Apply
  •     Gadolinium-free Imaging
  •     Efficient MRI

Educational and plenary sessions will focus on these topics. Scientific sessions, however, will cover all topics!

We invite you to submit your research on any MRI-related topic!

Abstract Submission will open in February 2019.

Submission Deadline is April 11, 2019.


Visit the ESMRMB Booth at ECR 2019

We are looking foward to seeing you at ECR!

Visit the ESMRMB booth and check out our special offers, only available on-site!

See you in Vienna!


Call for Papers: MAGMA Special Issue “MRI Biomarkers of Renal Diseases”

Renal diseases pose a significant and escalating socio-economic burden on healthcare systems worldwide, but development of more effective treatments requires new diagnostics that can pick up disease progression at an early stage. This special issue will help to fill this gap by promoting further research in renal MRI biomarker validation and by providing an insight into the future development of this promising new technology.

For more details, please click here.

The deadline to submit your paper is: July 1, 2019


MR Enterprise Section: GE Healthcare

GE Healthcare has introduced a new MR coil technology: The AIR Technology Suite. AIR coils were developed to address several clinical needs that were challenging to simultaneously reconcile until now: large coverage with high SNR, optimized geometry for parallel imaging, and an adaptive design that fits 99.9% of patients across all body applications while remaining ultra-light for the comfort of both technologists and patients.

For more information about the clinical benefits of AIR technology, read the evaluation feedback from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, or watch this video.


MR Enterprise Section: Siemens Healthineers

Save up to 50% Scan Time and Increase Patient Satisfaction with Turbo Suite

Disruptive innovations such as Compressed Sensing (CS), Simultaneous Multi-Slice (SMS), and CAIPIRINHA advance MRI in clinical routine and research. To provide the right answers to individual needs, we have introduced Turbo Suite. Compromised of different techniques, i.e., SMS for RESOLVE, and TSE as well as CS for SPACE, TOF, and SEMAC, the respective Turbo Suite package allows acceleration of 2D and 3D MRI from head to toe by up to 50%1.

Turbo Suite also helps to expand the patient population eligible for MRI: Applying through-time regularization provides up to 40-fold acceleration, making free-breathing cardiac MR exams and dynamic contrast-enhanced imaging of the abdomen with free breathing a clinical reality.
